Hi, I was just here an hour ago. This receipt shows that I was charged for three of these things, but I only bought two. No, I didn’t notice until I got home. But then I came right back. Since I was charged for three instead of two.
Um, I’m not sure how to prove that. Here are the two I bought, still in the bag. I don’t have a third. Does that work? No?
Yes, I do understand that people could remove one from the bag. But I didn’t.
How about asking the person who rang these up if she remembers? It was in that lane there.She’s gone home for the night? And was fired so she’s never coming back?
That’s a shame. But given that you fired her, is it possible that she misrang this sale?
Oh! Could you please check your stock list? Because if there were only two, then it would have been impossible for me to have bought three, right?
Those aren’t up to date? That’s…useful.
Could you go back to your security cameras and rewind to an hour ago? And then you’ll see that I am standing here with two items? Not three? Oh, you can’t do that? Who can? No one? It’s not even possible to rewind?
What do you do with the tapes then? Do you ever watch them? No? So pardon my asking, but why do you bother taping in the first place? It’s company policy? Interesting. And kind of bizarre.
What other options are there? You can’t think of any? Really? Not one?
How about you give me back my fifteen dollars and we call it a day?
Yes, this entire conversation was for the benefit of fifteen dollars. I know. But it feels too late to turn back now…
Narrator: They said they’d call. They did not.
